Hi everyone, this is my fist post, I am seeking some guidance on where to pursue a PhD. degree on Applied Math or Mathematical Physics. I got my Bachelor's on Physics and right now I'm on the second half of a Master's in math. I'm planning to apply soon for a PhD but I've got no real idea where should I do it. My main research interests are PDE's (both analytical and numerical methods) classical mechanics/electrodynamics, but i really want to do some interdisciplinary work. I would prefer a program in Canada or Europe, but i'm open to US institutions also.- In fact the most attractive program i've seen is the Applied and Interdisciplinary Math in Michigan.

Thanks in advance for your advice!

The Courant Institute of NYU is really good in applied math.

Hey that Cambridge program sounds great, definitely something to think about. Anyone actually enrolled in it?

Also i should add that i migh not be looking for Ivies, or Oxbridge kinda school. I'm looking for a good comprehensive program rather than a top flight name.

It seems like applied math ain't very popular around. Anyone who might not be on and applied math program but that might know something about that program on the grad school they attend?

I'm very interested in applied math, but I'm still a year or two away from completing my undergrad. There are programs out there. I only know about the US applied math programs.

Below are some links to a few applied math programs around the UK (besides Oxford and Cambridge):

Which area(s) of applied mathematics are you interested in?

Hi, I've been working with hyperbolic PDE's for a while, analytical and numerical stuff. I guess that my areas of interest can be summarized by something like "mathematical modeling" with applications in electromagnetic theory, but i would like to learn on inverse problems and applications on the life sciences.

I'm also interested in that field of research (PDEs, mathematical modeling). What do you think about it?
